12th Carbon Dioxide Utilization Summit
February 27 & 28, 2019 | Houston, Tx

While energy systems can be decarbonized through the use of renewables, emissions from industry face more significant challenges as many of their emissions are a natural byproduct of the manufacturing processes.

The cement industry, in particular, is both an energy- and emissions-intensive industry because of the extreme heat required to produce cement and the release of CO₂ from the limestone during the process. It represents approximately 5% of the world’s anthropogenic CO₂ emissions.

Project CO₂MENT: Building a Circular Economy Around Cement’s CO₂ Emissions

In this session, the panel will explore how a project in BC, Canada, could answer the following questions:

  • Can we build a CO₂ marketplace around cement emissions?
  • Is there a business opportunity for converting CO2 from a global liability to a profit centre?
  • How can the cement industry help itself by using the carbon dioxide they emit?

Bring your ideas and add to the discussion about the opportunities and challenges with closing the carbon loop and recycling CO₂ waste emissions into valued products.

“It is empowering to know, given my Alberta heritage, our technology can change the climate impacts of the Alberta oil sands regions and generate significant additional economic benefits.”

Brett Henkel

Co-Founder and Vice President Strategic Accounts & Government Affairs

Brett Henkel’s unabashed optimism tempered by his mechanical engineering background and gas separation experience combine to bring a rare perspective to his position on Svante’s executive team.

Transferring the company’s breakthrough CO2 capture technology to customers’ sites will rely heavily on Brett’s strengths for identifying and understanding the technical and business details and relating those details to partners’ teams, approving agencies, and stakeholders.

As co-founder, he was instrumental in creating the process and the hardware used to prove the technology’s effectiveness as well as mobilizing external support throughout the path to becoming a successful innovation. These experiences strengthened his knowledge of business development and program management priorities.

Prior to launching Svante, Mr. Henkel was the program manager for QuestAir Technologies’ compact hydrogen production system with its partner, ExxonMobil. He is credited with designing the world’s first solenoid-driven rapid pressure swing adsorption test station.

Brett received his Bachelor of Science in Physics, with distinction, and a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Victoria.
